IT Chapter Two [Movie Review]

IT Chapter Two [Movie Review] | IT Chapter Two was another horror movie that I have been looking forward to watching. And when I learnt that it will air for almost 3 hours, I was super happy and ecstatic to watch the end of IT.

My little brother was the one who discovered the novel IT and the IT miniseries in the 1990s, when we were younger. A few minutes into an espidose of IT, both of us decided not to watch it anymore and will stick to reading IT. And I was kinda scared of clowns after that.

It was not until I was old enough and I think I was ready to watch IT, back in 2017. And I am no longer scared of clowns, except for the ugly ones.

Thanks to Screenbite for the invitation to the premiere.

Why can't we have a meeting during the day, like all sensible human beings?

I think you might have overdrawn your lips, way too much, Sir
Mike, the only member of the Losers Club group that stays behind in Derry get wind of the story and visits the site of the scene. There, when he sees the writing 'Must Come Home' in blood on the walls, he knows that IT is back.
He starts calling the gang, one by one. All of them are now living far away from Derry, living their own personal lives to the fullest, with no memory at all about what has happened 27 years ago in their home town. And after each call, the memories of Derry and all the horror stories that they have left behind starts to come flooding back to their mind.

Oh damn. Your breath are gross - ever heard of flossing and going to the dentist?
All except one of them decided to meet up and uphold their promise to kill IT together if IT comes back. Stanley decides to kill himself as he could not face the memories and do not want to go through the experience again.

Mike shares with them the history of IT - how it comes to being and once, a tribe was almost successful in its effort to kill IT. In order to kill IT again, all of them have to find their personal artifact and bring it together in a Chud Ceremony - a ceremony to kill IT.

The now grown up Losers Club members will have to relive some of their most unpleasant memories to get their artifacts and here's where flashbacks of them growing up experiences explained their story. 

And IT will certainly appear in every single scene of that experience.

Will they be able to face their fears and kill IT, for real, this time?
Or will their fear get the best of them?

When one mirror is not enough to ensure that I will not be overdrawing the lips too much, again

Plot: 4.9/ 5.0. I would have given it 5/ 5 if not for the very long and winding history of the Losers Club members that at times became very slow and the movie lose its footing. And somehow, it managed to come back to the right track and keeps me entertained (and scared so many times). But all in all, the flashbacks serve its purpose in making us understand the story of each member.

And guys, be prepared to be scared. Heck. You will never know when you will be scared by IT. IT just comes out anytime, anywhere and it was all perfect timing.

Cast: 5.0/ 5.0 I read in one review that says' bringing all the big names was the only thing that keeps this afloat'. Well, I beg to differ. The actors and the storyline does HUGE to the movie. James McAvoy certainly plays his role as a stammering guy very successfully - talking about a guy who plays so many roles in a movie (Split & Glass). The others did their character justice. I couldn't imagine another actor taking the roles from them.

Will I watch it again: YES. I don't mind watching it again.
